Experience next-gen gaming for less.
Microsoft serves the next-generation for less with its budget-friendly Xbox Series S. The console packs the same high-performance CPU and SSD technology as Xbox Series X, while scaling back the GPU and removing the disc drive.
The full next-generation experience.
Xbox Series X is Microsoft's new flagship, as its most powerful console with over 12TF GPU performance and a custom SSD. It boasts up to 4K resolution and 120 FPS, full backward compatibility across four generations, and ray-tracing support.
Can Xbox Series X play 4K Blu-ray?
Microsoft already has consoles on the market that can play 4K Blu-ray discs, the Xbox One X, and Xbox One S. The Xbox One X and Xbox One S both include Ultra HD Blu-ray players, which can read 100GB Blu-ray discs used to store 4K content. Microsoft's high-end next-generation console, the Xbox Series X, will also include a 4K Blu-ray players and will be capable of watching the same movies.
Xbox Series X 4K Blu-ray What about Xbox Series S?
Credible rumors reported by Windows Central indicated that Microsoft is also working on a lower-end next-generation console, codenamed Lockhart,which will complement the Xbox Series X, forming a dual-pronged approach of sorts. These reports were proven true with the announcement of the Xbox Series S. Xbox Series S does not have a disk drive and so it is unable to play 4K Blu-ray discs.
4K digital media is supported on the Xbox Series S though. As an all-digital next-generation gaming console, the Xbox Series S is capable of playing all digital Xbox Series X games.
The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are both set to release on November 10, 2020, with preorders open on September 22. The Xbox Series X costs $499, while the Xbox Series S costs $299.
Play all your disks
The Xbox Series X includes a 4K Blu-ray disk drive, so you can watch all your movies and play your games just like on the Xbox One S or Xbox One X. If you prefer physical media, this is the console for you.
Smallest Xbox and smallest price
The Xbox Series S plays all the games the Xbox Series X does, from backward compatible titles to next-generation experiences. It's a digital-only console with a weaker graphics unit but the same overall hardware.
